A Prophet for Our Time

This last weekend, I went to San Antonio with a friend to hear Fr. John Corapi speak. We left for San Antonio on Friday morning and made it to the book signing at the Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. My friend and I actually sneaked through the line a second time so she could get Fr. Corapi to sign her bible as well.
In this photo, he has just finished signing her bible and is getting ready to sign the insert for a CD series of his on the Holy Spirit.

After the book signing, we checked into the Drury Plaza Hotel a few blocks away. It was right on the River Walk so we made our way down and joined all the other sweaty people. It was so hot and there isn't much of a breeze along the river. At least there was shade - the much coveted shade that drops the temp just a few degrees. We made our way to the shopping mall and we each had an extra large Strawberry Lemonade Julius to help cool us down.

Then we were off to happy hour and dinner back at the hotel. We took much needed showers, we got a good night of sleep to get up early for breakfast.

Soon we were headed to the AT&T center - home of the San Antonio Spurs. We made it to our seats just before Fr. Corapi was introduced. This man is a much needed prophet for our times. The topic of his addresses was "Life, Love and the Purpose of Our Existence." The event was sponsored by Alexander House, and supported by Guadalupe Radio.

Fr. Corapi gave 4 talks in all - material for another post.
